Owen Sound? well that little Scamp of a puppy needed some more Puppy Food, while I needed a new memory card for my camera, and a few other things.
First stop? Staples where I got the memory card, a box of printer paper that we also needed, 2 packages of washable markers for the Grandchildren when they come to visit, as I am thinking their old ones will need replacing soon anyway, and that was it for that stop.
Second stop? Walmart where I picked up the Puppy Food, but first got sidetracked at the front of the store where they had 8 Royal Double Roll toilet paper on sale for $3.97, as I can never have enough toilet paper in supply. Do you know when you have a household of people come stay they can almost go through as much toilet paper then the amount of food they consume some visits? or only have I noticed this to be true in my household? or maybe I might be exaggerating a tad? *smile* I also got treats for the "gang", as well as training nibbles for the Scamp of a puppy.
Once I was finished with my little shopping trip I was happy to meet up with my friend, Toni with an "i", at Timmies for a coffee. I was happy to find out I wasn't the only exhausted tired chickie on the block, as she was pretty tired herself after a long and busy week. Gee Whizz I hope to heck we both revitalize ourselves before we leave next Friday or we are not going to see any of the sights on our mini trip.
I got back home about 1 pm to all our Aussie's delight. Our Crabby Cabbie Wiarton driver, John, dropped off the Wiarton vehicle and phone to me while he went back home to have himself an afternoon of rest.
I thought to myself, "no problem" I will get lots done as it was a long weekend and everyone would be busy with their plans. Wrong ... a trip to Sauble Beach, one into Wiarton and another out to Oxeden. That pretty much broke up the afternoon for me pretty good.
However I did manage to do a bit of dusting, wash a sink full of dishes and do a bit of vacuuming between the calls and having the Aussies out and about.
I also made a trip into the garden with a puppy that should not have been in there with me. After that trip we had the mini lesson on sitting and shaking the paw for treats.
John did come back about 5 pm to retrieve the phone from me. Before he did that I had received a call to go to Meaford to bring someone back to Wiarton. Rob had just came into Wiarton with another fare, so he set off to do the Meaford run himself.
Well the Crabby Cabbie has did it again with personality and service. The customer had apparently tried 6 different other cab companies before he got our number. He had told Rob whoever had answered the phone to take his call (this would have been "moi"), had not even paused a second, only to ask him where he needed picked up and that someone would be on their way to pick him up. He was beyond thoroughly impressed. Since he is a local well known Doctor, I am pretty sure it will be mentioned on how favourable he thought our service to be. Great job my dear Crabby Cabbie Rob, you are very good at what you do my dear, and this makes me very proud.
Really for the number of disgruntled customers we have ever had, the good ones have outnumbered those by the hundreds. Any business is going to find people who are NEVER happy with anything, and I sometimes think these same people are probably not even happy with their own lives or self.
Oh yes ... yesterday I had parked my Van underneath one of our Maple trees as I usually do as to keep it a bit on the cooler side being in the shade.
Rob finally did get to return home for Dinner today after 7 pm.
My dear Rob has headed off to bed for a couple of hours shut-eye before going back out later tonight. I will be heading out soon with each of our Aussies for one last time this day, then calling it a night myself, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
